Monta Loma's commitment
picture of leopard printDear families,

I am excited to welcome you to the Monta Loma community.

Monta Loma Elementary is committed to challenging students to reach their academic and social potential to prepare them for success in the world ahead. We provide opportunities for children to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning. Teachers challenge students to think critically, solve problems, communicate effectively, and collaborate with peers. Our teachers participate in professional development and work with an instructional coach throughout the year to continually improve instructional practice, plan engaging lessons, and provide differentiation for all learners.

At Monta Loma, our staff, students, and families work together to provide a safe and caring environment for all students using an approach that supports both academic and social/emotional teaching, and our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Courage, Compassion, and Hard Work. Our core values are the heart of our school climate and are what guides our behavior and actions throughout the day. Students are recognized for demonstrating our core values throughout the year with weekly Leopard Spot Winners and monthly Leopard Leader Awards.

Monta Loma is focused on building a strong, collaborative community with an emphasis on parent engagement and high student achievement. We offer a variety of community building events and opportunities for parents to contribute to the greater school community. Our goal is for all families to participate in some manner in their child’s education during the course of the year. Participation varies from working at one of our many PTA events to volunteering in the classroom to attending the weekly Leopard Launch or other school meetings. Families are a crucial component in the success of our students and we warmly welcome parent participation.

In partnership,
Gloria Higgins
